A man was killed, and a woman was critically injured in a shooting Saturday night in Humboldt Park.
There has been crickets in the media about this possible hate crime.
The shooting took place as people were leaving Chicago’s 43rd Annual Puerto Rican People’s Day Parade, which people from all over the country and Puerto Rico travel to the city to attend.
The victims had a large Puerto Rican flag waving from their car when they were approached by a mob of black men and pulled from the vehicle and shot.
Police say the couple was “ambushed” by “up to three males.”
ABC 7 reports that “the man was rushed to Saints Mary and Elizabeth Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, police said. He has not been identified. The woman was struck in the neck and rushed to Stroger Hospital in critical condition, police said.”
WARNING, THE FOLLOWING VIDEOS ARE GRAPHIC:
This is a racist attack. This is what MSM will never talk about because it doesn’t fit their narrative.
Puerto Rican’s (see flag) pulled out of their vehicle and shot by Black attackers.
Latino -vs- Black is a common cultural conflict. https://t.co/UNsYFk6ikC

Humboldt Park #Chicago last night. A Latino couple displaying a Puerto Rican flag on their car was pulled out of their car and shot.
At least 21 people were shot in #Chicago overnight so far and the weekend is not over. @chicagosmayor @LoriLightfoot shame on you! pic.twitter.com/uvtlGhZKHo
